by a historic effort that extends beyond our government, because america has no greater resource than the strength and the compassion of the american people. we just met in the oval office, an office they both know well, and i'm pleased that president george w. bush and president bill clinton have agreed to lead a major fund-raising effort for relief. the clinton/bush haiti fund. on behalf of the american people, i want to thank both of you for returning to service and leading this urgent mission. this is a model that works. after the terrible tsunami in asia, president bush turned to president clinton and the first president bush to lead a similar fund. that effort raised substantial resources for the victims of that disaster, money that helped save lives, deliver aid and rebuild communities. and that's exactly what the people of haiti desperately need right now. every day that goes by, we learn more about the horrifying scope of this catastrophe -- destruction and suffering that defies comprehension, entire communities buried under mountains of concrete, families sleeping in th
